. this is the first poll based entirely on interviews after the debate. mitt romney had a modest debate bounce. the question is will it be a blip or lasting change. >> gretchen: look at the university of colorado forecasting model. this is interesting. this is the only model that looks at the electoral college and you need those votes to be president. 330, of the 538 map are going to mitt romney. this is the same out fit in august or september or august 22nd prediction they said the same thing. but romney picked up five more points. >> steve: what they do. they look at economics of what is going on nationally and local and state level . they look at wealth and they look at unemployment and all sorts of stuff. they predict mitt romney will win these states. new mexico and that is new since they updated it and, north carolina and win virginia ohio new hampshire colorado, wisconsin and ohio and florida and barack will win michigan and nevada. >> gretchen: i don't think that romney will win minnesota. as a native of that state, that is in the obama camp. >> they say voters hold democrats more resp
in that first debate with mitt romney. was it just a question of manners? also, while polls show mitt romney turning things around, he still faces a big hurdle in a critical battleground state. why ohio's so-called walmart moms may not be sold on the republican nominee. and should race or ethnic background be considered when students apply to college? the u.s. supreme court weighs a new challenge to affirmative action. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> the obama administration got a grilling today over the assault on the united states consulate in benghazi, libya, that took the lives of the united states ambassador and three other americans. state department officials took a lot of heat in a partisan congressional hearing. and the white house was also bombarded with questions today about the handling of the entire incident. let's go live to our white house correspondent, dan lothian. he's got the very latest. dan. >> reporter: wolf, you know, this was the first briefing that we've had in about two w

voters have a favorable opinion of mitt romney than president obama, but only by a hair. and in a poll that was taken after the debate, a fox news poll. mitt romney had 52% favorability rating. one point higher than the president's 51%, but 4 points higher than before the debate in denver whereas the president's number didn't budge before and after. in the second round of debating could maybe the numbers flip again since this format leaves both candidates a lot of room to be, remember, not only for what they say, but what they do or where they stand. when vice-president al gore stood too close to then governor george w. bush and looked awkward. >> and, president obama is a few points ahead in a few critical swing states. so, a strong debate at hofstra university out on long island is important for both men, back to you. >> alisyn: it should be really interesting, thanks for the preview, important policy will be interesting to hear them talk about that, including one of the questions that they said was going to be what is the u.s.'s role in the world? >> that's in the third and final de

. according to american research group polls released on friday, republican nominee mitt romney has a slight advantage over president barack obama in both states. in florida, romney is at 49%, obama at 46. and romney's advantage in new hampshire is four points, 50-46%. ohio is one of the key swing states for both romney and obama. both have spent a whole lot of time there talking with voters. here's cnn's political editor paul steinhauser. >> good morning, randi. it's all about the buckeye state today. >> we need your help. we've got to win ohio. you've got to get your friends to help us win ohio. >> reporter: that's why mitt romney is spending his second straight day in ohio, where 18 electoral votes are up for grabs. mr. obama won the state four years ago. now ohio is one of the states romney really needs to turn red again in order to make it to the white house. the republican presidential nominee holds two rallies in the state today and his running mate paul ryan also campaigns separately in the buckeye state. president obama was in ohio a few days ago. next week, bruce springsteen will t
the election. there's a new poll that i want no share with you and voters showing romney ahead in florida. 51% to 44%. >> amazing. >> why do you they is and is this what you expected? >> i didn't expect it quite like this. i didn't expect president obama to fumble. and he did fumble. let's be honest. it's not that mitt romney did so well. it's that barack obama, our president, fumbled in the first debate. tuesday i expect for president obama to come out gang busters in a different format and do very well. but here's the important thing. as i said last time in florida, 24% of the voters are not republican, they're not democrat. they're independents. and independents are now paying attention, and they care a lot about reality, not just rhetoric. the economy means a lot to them. and i think they are leaning toward mitt romney for one reason, he doesn't scare independents. he's not that right wing conservative that newt guy ritchie or rick santorum is. he's considered a moderate to independents. that 24% in florida i think are the most important voters in the united states. >> he is certainly mak
of polls on republican mitt romney and we will like to show you this. joe biden has more unfavorable than favorables. paul ryan plus 16 and that may due to the fact. can do record still being introduced in the country. he will get a chance to get better acquainted with folks who don't know him better tonight. >> gretchen: thank you so much. we'll talk to you soon. >> brian: i believe that this would be the most consequential debate. because of how poorly the president did. every 10 people that you talk tompt 7 out of 10 said that the president got crushed. momentum is firmly in the romney camp and now 42 year old paul ryan against 69 year old joe biden and a guy who has been studying fervantly has to take on the whiz kid from congress. is he capable of stopping the bleeding. >> steve: the moderator will be martha ratz. she's the moderator and she is a long-time correspondant for abc news. she is the moderator of the vp debate. guess what was in attendance of her wedding in 1991 when she married a harvard lawyer. you know who went to er wedding? barack obama and mr. obama, her then husband
the romney campaign now has momentum because of the first debate. the daily rasmussen poll out has the race again tied at 48. the governor moved up in states like pennsylvania and michigan where he was losing ground before the debate >> a poor place to be for a couple of reasons. number one, is head to head number was under 47 before the debate. it's very difficult when you have a known quantity to claw up to 50. so that was a very, very poor place for him to be. so we're looking at this polling data not only in florida, but in virginia and in north carolina and it's overwhelming. the other part of the florida poll is that there are 12 candidates on the ballot. and if you look, a lot of people don't think of it as a two-person race. when you look at the votes for the third party candidates, they're second choice is romney by a long shot. so as those votes convert to romney or obama -- >> bill: you're say not guilty in a fellow, there is people who can't win and those people who are thinking of voting to them and don't waste their vote, will most likely break for the governor so that gives h
